Round 4 – Updated Scores and Tables

The Fourth round of the 2015-16 season has come and gone, the positions in the ladder are starting to solidify. That being said, there’s still plenty of the season to go.

Juniors

The junior games proved one sided; all the away teams won and only one home team, the Perth Broncos, managed to score. Friday night saw the Blitz hand a severe loss to the Saints,?shutting them out and putting 36 points on the board before the final whistle.

The Vipers, first up on Saturday, went one TD better by putting 42 points on the Steelers and also shut them out. Finally, the Broncos, scoring a TD for the home teams, were beaten by the Wolverines 26-6.

These results only serve to compress the ladder, with positions 2-5 on the same points (8), losses?and points difference separating them.

L Saints 0 36 Blitz W
L Steelers 0 42 Vipers W
L Broncos 6 26 Wolverines W

Seniors

The seniors table is a little bit different. Two teams have yet to get points on the ladder, leaving the other five to take them all. The top two, Saints and Vipers, have set up an early lead and the rest will have some work ahead of them to reel them in.

The Saints managed another win on Friday night but not without some effort, an 8-6 win over the Blitz in Rockingham continued their early season form, undefeated in 4. The Vipers secured another win, this time by forfeit with the Steelers pulling out earlier in the week and the round finished with the Broncos putting the Wolverines to the sword with a 20-0 win.

W Saints 8 6 Blitz L
L Steelers 0 7 Vipers W

Power Ranking

I’m going to endeavour to put this in every week so people can see how their team is faring for the season in offense and defense.

In the seniors, the Saints have moved up one place on the Vipers in the rankings for offense to take top spot but the Vipers have moved up one on defense over the Saints, also to take top spot.

Scoring

The scoring ladders have been updated for both seniors and juniors. Daniel Strickland is leading the way for the Saints with 50 points and it’s a 6 way tie in the juniors, each with 12 points.

The caveat for this ladder is that there’s still information missing from the Vipers, Saints and Broncos so if you feel you should be on that ladder somewhere, please talk to your club representative about getting it rectified.

Next Round

Round 5 moves the league further north from Rockingham and into Curtin University. Edinburgh Oval will host the league for the next four rounds, taking us to Round 9 when we move north again.

These are your fixtures:
